Another blast from the past....
After the Festival of Britain on the South Bank was demolished,(criminal, that was,)they built a childrens playground on the site which I guess must now be near where Jubilee Gardens
is situated. I spent many a Summer Sunday over there as a kid. Among other things there were sand pits, tunnels that you could crawl through and a big wooden replica of a steam trian to play on. Some of you 'mature' people must remember it. The only two things that remained after the Festival was the Festival Hall and a restaurant at the end of a pier that jutted out over the Thames. That too has now long gone, but I would like to know how long it remained.
